This week's "Your Turn" segment comes from the Action News 5 Facebook page where people were commenting on last weekend's prize drawing for the St. Jude Dream Home giveaway. The promotion raised more than $1.2 million for St. Jude Childrens' Hospital. One of our Facebook friends has firsthand knowledge of the good work done at St. Jude. She is Jonah Givanni:

I had leukemia when I was 16 months old. I am now 28 years old. If it were not for Danny Thomas and Jesus and all the prayers and donations, none of us would be here today. And no child is turned down at St. Jude. I am now taking part in the St. Jude for Life study and it is awesome that I can help some other child through research.

That's Jonah Givanni's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
